Description

Join the South Carolina United Nations Association for their exciting UN Day Celebration on October 29, 2017 at 1:00 pm at the South Carolina State Capitol grounds. This event commemorates the 72nd anniversary of the ratification of the UN Charter. We anticipate a festive and enlightening day of celebration, collaboration, fall snacks, and lots of fun! Distinguished speakers include Rep.

UNA-USA is the largest grassroots organization in the nation dedicated to educating, inspiring, and mobilizing Americans to support the principles and vital work of the United Nations. In celebration of UN Day each year, our network of 180 Chapters across the country host events to highlight the important role played by the UN in today’s world.

UNA-USA’s national theme for UN Day this year is “Global Goals, Local Leaders,” wherein our network will recognize local efforts to champion one or more of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. We hope our UN Day program at the South Carolina State House will increase public awareness on local efforts to achieve the Global Goals.
